April 20, 2016: Competing at Hagen

With pleasant anticipation we're heading to Hagen today. Imperio and Mefisto will compete in the 4*-Tour, both are doing well these days. Imperio had a special day recently: We did attend a seminar for team members last week. This was much fun on one hand, and we could again make some progress here and there. Escolar will be presented in the qualifier for the Nürnberger Burg Pokal. Although this young stallion is quite busy with semen production, our preparation for Hagen went really smooth: Last week at Hattingen, we had our first competition on S-level. Escolar, who is barely seven now, got a score of 76.786 per cent, leaving us with a golden ribbon. Let's see what Hagen will bring us!

With us will be Nicole Smith, presenting her mare Victoria in the 4*-Tour. In the Small Tour, Ivan will show So What a Feeling, and Fabienne and Flynn PCH will compete in the qualifier for the Louisdor-Prize.
